The Ed Little Home (circa 1912-1920)


Owned by Edgar Vance Little (1880-1951). He was married
to Mattie Ethel Isenhour (1884-1956), dau. of Philo Elmore
Isenhour and Margaret Catherine Stine
Several other Isenhour/Stine marriages occurred in this county.

This Isenhour line goes back to Martin Eisenhauer (1725-1760)
and Anna Barbara Graff Eisenhauer (1730-1770) and includes
other lines, such as Hunsucker, Stine, Bolick/Bolch and Smith,
all originating in the Palatine area of France/Germany and,
serendipitously, in the greater Conover area, between
St. Peter's Church and 'Nawth' Newton.

Ed and Mattie's daughter, Margaret, married Jacob Ray Setzer.
He was of the line of "Sawmill" Jake, one of twelve+ Jacob Setzers
known to have lived in Catawba County before 1900. Jake was the
great-grandson of the pioneer, Johannes Adam Setzer
who was b. before 1710, in Germany.

This beautiful turn-of-the century home still stands.
As you enter Conover from Newton, and before reaching the
RR tracks, it is on the left. Now home of Dellinger Interiors,
it is well maintained at 410 First Avenue, South.
